The Night of the Surreal McCoy - S2-E23

Continuity mistake: West enters the portrait and is stretched out on his back on the ground. As he is walking to the saloon, his entire backside of his suit is covered in dirt. West becomes dizzy, and as he is falling to the ground, face first, we see that the entire back side of his suit is clean. (00:35:50)

The Night of the Surreal McCoy - S2-E23

Continuity mistake: During the fight, the candle on the left tilts to the left. Next shot, it is perfectly vertical. West knocks a thug into the bureau, and left candlestick tilts to the right. After the fight is done when West is opening the door for Gordon, the candle is inexplicably on the floor. (00:12:45)

The Night of the Surreal McCoy - S2-E23

Continuity mistake: The second thug to be knocked-out is on the floor (to the left of screen) and has fallen on his left-side with his left leg slightly bent, and his right leg cannot be seen. When Gordon enters the room, this unconscious thug is now positioned face down, arms extended over his head, and both legs stretched out. (00:12:55)

The Night of the Surreal McCoy - S2-E23

Continuity mistake: The last thug to be knocked-out is on the floor by the fireplace with his body at an angle to it. When Gordon enters the room, this unconscious thug is closer to the fireplace, and his body has changed position to be parallel to it. (00:12:55)

The Night of the Bubbling Death - S3-E1

Revealing mistake: As West drags the body of a bad guy out of the scene, the supposedly unconscious man is holding his head up so as not to have his head dragged through the dirt. A truly unconscious person's head would flop back on to the ground.
